ESPN's expert panel of 53 members released their 2017 list of the Top 100 Players in the NFL and seven members of the Seattle Seahawks appear in it - including six in the Top 50.

According to them, they rated "NFL players based on how good they will be in 2017. We asked them to not emphasize past performance or positional value, only greatness. A rating of 100 implies the player will have an all-time great 2017 season, while 90 denotes an All-Pro-level performance and 80 translates to a very good (if not elite) campaign."
